Watford News: Chamberlain leaving; Lens move for Brice Dje DjeDje

Watford goalkeeper coach Alec Chamberlain is leaving the club.

The departure is described as “amicable" by the club, with Chamberlain moving on “to take up some new challenges in his football coaching career".

Watford chairman and chief executive Scott Duxbury told the club website: “Alec's contribution to this club is significant and will remain undiminished by the passing of time.

“I first met him as the club's goalkeeper coach, but it was clear the esteem he was held in by supporters and staff alike. That's testament to the contributions he has made to this club over a very long period of time.

“I'm sure Alec will be successful in whatever he chooses to do next and we wish him all the very best for the future. He'll always be a very welcome visitor here at Vicarage Road."

Meanwhile, Watford outcast Brice Dje DjeDje is in talks with Lens.

The full-back was not named in the Hornets' 25-man Premier League squad for the second season running and has been playing for the U23s in recent months.

Djedje has made just two appearances for the first-team since signing from Marseille in 2016, and they both came in the FA Cup back in January.
